Nerdist has posted a new episode of The Thrilling Adventure Hour: Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars, titled “Can a Leopard Upgrade Its Spots?” You can listen to it here. It was recorded on September 7.
Starring Marc Evan Jackson as Sparks Nevada and Mark Gagliardi as his faithful Martian companion, Croach the Tracker. Also starring Molly Quinn as Pemily Stalwark; Jeremy Carter, Matt Gourley, and Mark McConville as the robot congregation; and Garret Dillahunt as Techs.
Another episode of Thrilling Adventure Hour with Garret, recorded on October 1, has been posted on Nerdist.com. You can listen to it here.
This “Showdown, You Move Too Fast,” like last month’s “Date with Destinos” finds Sparks (Marc Evan Jackson) just trying to make time with his new girlfriend Rebecca Rose Rushmore (Linda Cardellini) but the weirdo sitcom characters surrounding them — Josh Malina‘s Barkeep, Mark Gagliardi‘s Croach the Tracker, and, insanely, Annie Savage‘s hilarious Robot Doors (the saloon’s artificial intelligence) — can’t leave them alone.
We always knew this storyline was leading to the robot outlaw Techs (introduced in the USSA spin-off, podcast #58) outgunning Sparks to become the new Marshal of Mars. Scoring Garret Dillahunt as Techs was a coup for us; we are enormous Deadwood fans. And having Garret as Techs gives this silly showdown gravitas we couldn’t have imagined.
Nerdist posted the first episode of Thrilling Adventure Hour with Garret today. He plays Techs, the robot. You can listen to it here.
Starring James Urbaniak as Lt. Gene Peeples and Shannon Woodward as Executive Officer Linda Bayley-Peeples. Also starring Annie Savage, Colin Hanks, Janet Varney, and Garret Dillahunt as Techs. Recorded August 6, 2011. Continue reading →
IndieWIRE reports that Garret has made another film, called Revenge for Jolly! It was written by Brian Petsos and directed by Chadd Harbold, who also made One Night Only. Here is some more info:
Actors Oscar Isaac, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody, Ryan Phillippe, Kristen Wiig, David Rasche, Kevin Corrigan, Garret Dillahunt, Bobby Moynihan, and Gillian Jacobs are all part of the recently wrapped “Revenge For Jolly!” directed by short filmmaker Chadd Harbold and starring Brian Petsos. (…)
A dramatic dark comedy, “Revenge For Jolly!” follows a man (Petsos) who, with the help of his cousin (Oscar Isaac), seeks to avenge the death of his beloved dog, who was killed under confusing and suspicious circumstances. The two men follow a series of clues in an attempt to track down the dog’s murderer, leaving a path of destruction in their wake.
With all these names, it’s probably safe to presume that many of these appearances amount to small roles or cameos.
